The opposition between the US and China to the rise in artificial intelligence is of increasing concern to American legislators, because losing can threaten America's national security, economy, and prosperity. Nevertheless, American Microsoft engineers and Chinese ByteDance, the creator of TikTok, are working together in the KubeRay project, which should help companies manage IE applications more effectively.
At the Ray Summit Summit, held this week in San Francisco, programme engineer ByteDance Jiasin Shanh discussed their successes with data-processing professionals, machine learning experts and other developers interested in developing applications using open Ray software. Shang and Kanso explained some of the technical issues underlying KubeRay and explained the benefits of this software for the development of multi-computer IE applications.
Many companies often enter into partnerships and share engineering resources to participate in open source projects that in recent years have become popular and start up multiple startups. Microsoft and ByteDance are notable that competition between the US and China in the area of IP and intellectual property is emerging, which raises some concerns that technological advances can be used for surveillance and invasion of privacy.
Microsoft is investing heavily in IE, along with companies such as Amazon, Google, Meta* and Apple. Like Google, Microsoft is keeping an IE research laboratory in China to exploit the country's scientific talents.
However, as the number of users of TikTok has increased dramatically in recent years, ByteDance is actively involved in various open-source projects in the AI area. For example, in 2020, ByteDance introduced a set of NeurST software tools to translate speech using artificial intelligence, and last year, the company debuted in open-source corporate software with CloudWeGo.
Technology giants such as Microsoft and Meta* often use open source projects as a way to disseminate their internal ideas and development in the open community. This helps companies attract potential employees and serves as a way to promote technological leadership among developers.
The relationship between Microsoft and ByteDance has its history. In 2020, Microsoft tried to buy a TikTok from ByteDance, while then President Donald Trump threatened to ban the app in the United States. A year later, Microsoft's CEO, Satya Nadella, called a failed deal that he had ever had to work on.
